South African Musicians K.O, J’Something, Msaki and Qwabe Twins join forces for “Rainbow”, a song to give hope to people in these trying times.
Capitec Bank challenged the aforementioned artists to compose a charity single using crowdsourced lyrics from the public with the promise to donate its proceeds to the Solidarity Fund.
The song which has garnered over 7,000 views on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter was released on April 29 via an online event.
Lead Producer for the project K.O had this to say:
Our streets may be empty, but it’s still possible for us to connect in very special ways. We hope that this song does exactly what it’s intended to do – inspire hope during a time when many might be concerned about their mental health and wellbeing.K.O
Msaki, also had this to say:
One thing I’ve learnt about South Africans is the fact that we are so resilient – and I say that with some trepidation as we are sometimes forced to be resilient when we don’t have to be. I am in awe of how we are rallying together and helping each other.Msaki
